Expectations towards Higher Education: does Parental Education Matter?
Education can be an important mechanism to reduce intergenerational inequality. However, even when cognitive abilities and parental investments are held constant, attainment is inversely related to parental education. Using data of Dutch 9th graders, we investigate a potential source of decisions regarding educational attainment: differences in expectations of educational attainment by parental education. Our results indicate that students whose parents did not attend higher education are 1.4 percentage points less likely to expect to attend higher education. This relationship is substantial: it exceeds the role of parental income, gender and equals 0.7 of a standard deviation of self-efficacy beliefs. We find evidence of heterogeneity by high-school track and gender.
